Another set of cards completed for the reunion! This one actually has a little pocket inside to tuck cash, a check, or a giftcard into. If you want to make your own pocketed card, here's a link to my template in PDF format:

(The edge of the template lines up with the edge of the paper so that you don't have to do so much cutting.)
For another variation on distressing, try brushing the surface of an ink pad along the edges of your paper. This works especially well when the paper has a slight texture. I used a sepia colored ink pad for this card.
